Moving you forward through
and conflict resolution.
Solved with grace
TULIP is a boutique consultancy agency in the field of intellectual property. We help our clients choose the most efficient way to safeguard their strongest competitive advantage. For some, this may be a trademark, design or patent registration. For others, it could be contracts and measures to insure a trade secret protection, or perhaps a coexistence agreement with another competitor. Whatever the case may be, we bring all our experience, expertise and passion to give our client security and certainty to safely develop their innovations, as well as a way to maximize the return on their investment.
Our approach reflects our core belief that clients need fast and cost-effective, but also thorough solutions to their intellectual property challenges. Therefore, we bring speed to our process, but also take the time to analyse our clients’ business in order to offer strategy that would best serve their interests.
What we do
We assist with the protection of the various forms of intellectual property – trademarks, designs, patents, geographical indications, copyrights and trade secrets. We provide representation before Bulgarian, European and international bodies and institutions. We cooperate with colleagues in various jurisdictions to provide you with the best options for expanding your business globally.
We help our clients prevent unauthorized use of their intellectual property and enforce their rights against imitators and infringers on the market in Bulgaria. For multi-jurisdictional matters across Europe and the world, we work with trusted partners in various countries.
Intellectual property often represents one of the largest asset classes that a company holds. Unlocking its value is a key element in any business sale. We provide due diligence analysеs and valuation of trademarks, designs, patents, copyright, databases, customers lists, training systems, distribution networks and other
know-how that make up the intangible assets of a company.
Clients rely on us to also make intellectual property issues affecting their business go away. We draw on our experience and expertise in negotiations and out-of-court agreements, mediation and alternative conflict resolution to offer you techniques for achieving your priorities in negotiations and commercial disputes.
Our clients are original, hardworking and passionate about what they create and share with the world. We enjoy working with them and appreciate the opportunity to be inspired by their authenticity and innovation.
